A magnitude 5.7 earthquake near Bandar-e Lengeh, Hormozgan, Iran, was reported only by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ). The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter early evening on Wednesday, November 30th, 2022, at 6:17 pm local time.

New Zealand’s largest volcano has been rumbling for several months. Last night there was a 5.6 magnitude shake with aftershocks continuing through the night.

New Zealand’s best-known supervolcano hasn’t quietened, with scientists still recording around 20 local earthquakes at Taupō each week.

Yet there’s no indication that the enormous, lake-filled caldera volcano - where GeoNet’s alert level was raised to one for the first time ever in September – is at any immediate risk of eruption.

Lake Taupo is the crater of a massive super volcano and the risk of eruption for the first time in recent history was increased from zero to one back in September. Last nights quake marks the peak of its activity so far.

Scientists were working to develop a range of possible future scenarios for Taupō – and an actual eruption remained a decidedly unlikely one.

Lake Taupō, in the centre of New Zealand's North Island, is the calderaof the Taupō Volcano, a large rhyolitic supervolcano. This huge volcano has produced two of the world's most violent eruptions in geologically recent times.

The timeline of Taupo eruptions is interesting in that I wonder if it coincides with astronomical cycles?

Taupō volcano first began to erupt over 300,000 years ago. It is very large and has many vents, most of which are now under Lake Taupō. Geological studies of Taupō show that the volcano makes up only the northern half of the lake and a small surrounding area but there have been numerous eruptions from different sites within this large volcano. Taupō is not a large mountain because the eruptions have been so explosive that all material has been deposited far from the vent and subsequent collapse of the ground has formed a caldera (a collapsed volcano).

Most Recent Eruption​

Whenabout 1,800 years agoWherenorth-eastern Lake TaupōEffectsThe Taupō eruption was the most violent eruption in the world in the last 5,000 years; it was a complex series of events. The first phases of the eruption produced a series of five pumice and ash fall deposits over a wide area of the central North Island, especially east of Taupō and beyond Napier into Hawke Bay. The eruption culminated with a large and very energetic pyroclastic flow that devastated an area of about 20,000 km2 and filled all the major river valleys of the central North Island with pumice and ash. These pumice deposits can still be seen today and many of the major rivers in the North Island carry large amounts of this pumice when in flood. Rounded pumice found on the beaches of the North Island have come from this eruption. The Taupō eruption took place from a line of vents near the eastern side of the modern lake.

WORLDWIDE EARTHQUAKE REPORT NOVEMBER 30

As mentioned earlier in this thread, five days appears to be a recurring interval from the moment of an atmospheric fluctuation and a strong/major earthquake. An alert of potential and strong seismic activity for the regions in the purple band was issued on November 25 by SSGEOS. Another alert was issued yesterday November 29 for the same region. This suggests that the M5.7 earthquake in Iran is a precursor.


Iran is crisscrossed by major geological fault lines and is one of the most earthquake-prone countries in the world because it is located where the Arabian, Indian, and Eurasian tectonic plates meet.
earth-s-tectonic-plates.jpg
Iran has had a terrible history of massive earthquakes in recent decades, with some killing up to tens of thousands of people and causing billions in damages, such as the magnitude 6.6 quake in Kerman province in 2003 that killed 31,000 people and flattened the ancient city of Bam.

The tectonic platform in the Iranian region has been very active this year, with a series of earthquakes measuring five or more on the Richter scale, often felt in the Emirates.

Two weeks ago tremors were felt following an earthquake in Iran that measured 5.3 on the scale.

WORLDWIDE EARTHQUAKE REPORT DECEMBER 01

A series of tremors struck the caldera region of the Taupo volcano in New Zealand. The strongest earthquake has been a M5.4. Scientists maintain a level 1 threat from the supervolcano, which is currently the world's most serious volcanic problem.

Its most powerful eruption took place 26,500 years ago and was one of the largest in human history. It emitted 300 cubic kilometers of pyroclastic material into the atmosphere.

Latest quakes near Taupo volcano in the past 24 hours

~6 quakes above magnitude 3

Last week saw 3 M6 and 1 M7, being a M7.0 in the Solomon Islands.
In the usual area, there were 9 out of 138 earthquakes equal to or greater than 4.5 worldwide and 1249 out of 1703 quakes of all sizes.
Percentage: 73.3%
Last week saw no earthquakes worldwide reaching M6.0
In the usual area, there were 6 out of 110 earthquakes worldwide equal to or greater than 4.5 and 1444 out of 2191 quakes of all sizes.
Percentage: 65.9% (I think this is about the lowest in the last 3 years of having done this weekly roundup of this area.)

WORLDWIDE EARTHQUAKE REPORT DECEMBER 07

Strong magnitude 5.4 earthquake in Solomon Sea, 179 km (111 mi) SE of Gizo (pop: 6,150) on Thursday, December 8, at 7:18 am. The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth of 10km. The Kavachi submarine volcano is located 24 km from the epicenter.

Kavachi volcano is a shallow submarine volcano located south of the remote Vangunu Island in the Solomones. It is als known as Rejo te Kvachi, "Kavachi's Oven", and one of the most active of the Pacific with near surface eruptions every few years that often build temporary islands.

An earthquake of magnitude 5.1 occurred 30 km southeast of Hualien City, (pop. 350,500) Taiwan. The quake hit at a shallow depth of 30.8 km beneath the epicenter near Hualien City, Hualien, Taiwan, after midnight on Thursday, December 8th, at 12:54 am local time.

A unnamed volcano (24.00°N/121.83°E) is 37 km away from epicenter. A submarine eruption observed by the U.S. Navy boat "Southampton" took place on October 29, 1853 in the Philippine Sea offshore from the city of Hualien about 18 km from the eastern coast of Taiwan. Several days later another ship, the "Macedonian," passed the same location and reported white ash covering its curtains.
